Karoo - Day6 Leg3 - Rugged Swartberg

At the bottom of the Swartberg pass, once into the initial gorge, you twist along and come out at a river where people stop to picnic and swim in the summer.  Also just there is a lone standing pinnacle of rock onto which people have written "Jesus" as it forms a sort of natural cross.

We were photographing this just as two sales reps we had met in the restaurant last night came whizzing past us on their way to Oudtshoorn. They greeted us then continued on their way. We took a few more pictures of the rugged rocks from the bottom of the pass and carried on twisting our way up the hill.

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours and motorbike hire on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
